24 Apr. 2014 - Secret Illusion - In search of a new keyboards player!

Gus

 

Secret Illusion announced the following through their official site :

“After 6 years of musical collaboration spanning over 2 full length albums, 2 EP’s, 3 video clips and numerous live shows, all filled with heartwarming memories, Gus Dibelas will be parting ways with the band, although he will be filling the keys spot for all upcoming band appearances until such time as a suitable replacement is found! The band would like to extend him their thanks for his contribution over the years and wish him all the best in all his musical endeavours.

Anybody interested in filling the soon to be vacant spot should contact the band at [email protected]  or the band’s social media pages (Facebook, Twitter).

The one to take the job should posses the necessary abilities (musical and mental alike) and the correct attitude towards such a demanding task! Power Metal aficionados are more than welcome!”

Κeep the faith,
Secret Illusion

Secret Illusion: Born Once Again (Official Video) 


Οι Secret Illusion κυκλοφορούν νέο βίντεο για το “Born Once Again!

Οι Secret Illusion, ανέβασαν το νέο βίντεο για το τραγούδι “Born Once Again”, στην επίσημη σελίδα της μπάντας στο YouTube! Aυτό είναι το πρώτο βίντεο για την προώθηση του νέου δίσκου “Change Of Time”.

Τα γυρίσματα της μπάντας έλαβαν μέρος στην Πάρνηθα τον περασμένο Οκτώβριο και το σενάριο σε ένα εγκαταλελειμμένο εργοστάσιο κρασιού, λίγο έξω από την Αθήνα! Η σκηνοθεσία και το μοντάζ έγιναν από τον Φίλιππο Παπακυριακού και τον Αντώνη Σκαραμαγκά. Επίσης, ένα ενδιαφέρον και αστείο βίντεο με σκηνές από τα παρασκήνια των γυρισμάτων ετοιμάζεται και θα δοθεί σύντομα στην δημοσιότητα!

Το "Change Of Time" θα κυκλοφορήσει στις 17 Μαρτίου 2014 (Ελλάδα) / 24 Mαρτίου 2014 (Διεθνώς) και θα είναι διαθέσιμο για αγορά σε όλα τα διαδικτυακά καταστήματα (Amazon, iTunes, CDBaby κλπ.), σε επιλεγμένα δισκοπωλεία της Ελλάδας και στην επίσημη ιστοσελίδα της μπάντας, σε φυσική και ψηφιακή μορφή.

03 Feb. 2014: Secret Illusion – Release date, artwork and track list of the new album!

 


We are happy to announce the release date of their 2nd album “Change Of Time”! Even more, we uploaded the album’s artwork for public viewing! The new album will be self-released and will hit the streets on March 17th 2014, containing the following tracks - “Northern Lights”, “Born Once Again”, “Point Of No Return”, “Perfect Fantasy”, “Beauty Queen”, “Winter Poem”, “Change Of Time”, “Love Lies” and “Words Left Forgotten”.

Due to the economic crisis that plagues us all and its impact in the music industry, we decided that this time we should take all matters, concerning all aspects of our music, in our own hands.

“Change Of Time” was produced by Nigel Foxxe and Filippos Papakyriakou and mixed/mastered by Nigel Foxxe at The Foxxe’s Lair in Athens and features the guest appearance of Spyros Lambrou’s Children’s Choir on two of the tracks! “Change of time” will be available for purchase through all the web stores (Amazon, Itunes, CdBaby, etc.) and the band’s Official Website, in physical and digital form.

The amazing artwork of the album is, once more, the work of Thass Jillion.

The new video clip for the song “Born Once Again” will be available on www.youtube.com/secretillusionband  in the next few days.



Secret Illusion – Ημερομηνία κυκλοφορίας, εξώφυλλο και tracklist του νέου δίσκου!

Eίμαστε στην ευχάριστη θέση να ανακοινώσουμε την ημερομηνία κυκλοφορίας του 2ου άλμπουμ "Change Of Time" και επιπλέον να δώσουμε στην δημοσιότητα το εξώφυλλο του δίσκου!

Λόγω της οικονομικής κρίσης που μαστίζει όλους μας και τον αντίκτυπό της στη μουσική βιομηχανία, αποφασίσαμε αυτή τη φορά να χειριστούμε όλα τα θέματα, που αφορούν κάθε πλευρά της μουσικής μας, μόνοι μας.

Η παραγωγή του “Change Of Time” έγινε από τον Nigel Foxxe και τον Φίλιππο Παπακυριακού, η μίξη και το mastering από τον Nigel Foxxe στα The Foxxe’s Lair Studios στην Αθήνα, ενώ αξιοσημείωτη είναι η συμμετοχή της παιδικής χορωδίας του Σπύρου Λάμπρου σε δύο τραγούδια! Το "Change Of Time" θα είναι διαθέσιμο για αγορά σε όλα τα διαδικτυακά καταστήματα (Amazon, iTunes, CDBaby κλπ.) και στην επίσημη ιστοσελίδα της μπάντας, σε φυσική και ψηφιακή μορφή .

Το εκπληκτικό artwork του άλμπουμ είναι, για μια ακόμη φορά, έργο του Thass Jillion.

Το νέο video clip για το τραγούδι "Born Once Again" θα είναι διαθέσιμο στο www.youtube.com/secretillusionband μέσα στις επόμενες ημέρες.

Keep the faith,
Secret Illusion
